Assessment Technologies Institute (ATI)
The ATI TEAS, or Test of Essential Academic Skills, is designed specifically to assess a student's preparedness entering the health science fields. The ATI TEAS test is comprised of 170 questions set up in a multiple-choice format with four-option answers. Questions are designed to test the basic academic skills you will need to perform in class in the areas of: Reading, Math, Science, and English and Language Usage.
Passing the TEAS is a key component of getting into nursing and allied health schools, but 30% of qualified applicants are turned away from ADN, Diploma and BSN programs. Since it’s a comprehensive exam, you’ll be tested on four different subject areas, so thorough preparation is crucial. We recommend allowing at least 6 weeks of preparation prior to taking the TEAS. On a tighter schedule? Don’t worry – we have solutions that fit any timeline. Prepare for the TEAS.
Most likely, you’ve been asked to take the TEAS (Test of Essential Academic Skills) as part of your basic admissions requirements for nursing or allied health school. Step one of taking the TEAS is registering for your test date, time, and location.
